On August 16th a neon green teaser with a dream kpop lineup appeared on everyone’s timeline. Listed were artists such as Monsta X, Super Junior, Kai, and Somi, with a message at the end saying “and many more.” Leaving onlookers to anticipate who else could be coming.
The anticipation ended on August 19th and the 22nd when a new crop of heavy-hitting artists was announced, the lineup included the likes of Taeyeon, Aespa, Epik High, Momoland, and T1419. A festival with a lineup such as this is something we haven’t seen since 2014 kcon. You could even say KAMP LA is a kpop version of Coachella, since the event is focused more on giving fans a chance to see as many artists as possible.
In a press release from the creators of KAMP LA, the two express that they want this to be the ultimate kpop experience.
“We want KAMP LA to be the ultimate K-pop experience in all aspects,” says Kim. “U.S. fans have waited so long for great music because of the pandemic–they need to see their favorite artists for the first time in two years in many cases.
-Tim Kim, KAMP Global CEO
CEO of Eventim Live Asia and business partner of KAMP went on to say that KAMP LA is a meaningful step in the right direction and that the best is yet to come!
“Kim’s vision was immediately exciting. KAMP Global and Eventim Live Asia share a true global vision for K-pop and the experience to make it happen in unprecedented ways. KAMP LA is a meaningful first step in that direction. There are many more to come.”
-Jason Miller, Eventim Live Asia CEO
